Cold Weather Chicken Care & Coop Winterization @ Grateful Tomato Garden
Oct 21 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Cold Weather Chicken Care & Coop Winterization @ Grateful Tomato Garden |  |  |

It can get pretty frigid here along the Wasatch Front during the winter months, and even though most chickens are pretty cold-hardy, it’s important for us as their caretakers to make sure that they’re protected from things like frostbite-causing conditions and cold drafts.

At this new “Cold Weather Chicken Care & Coop Winterization” workshop, we’ll discuss some of the risks chickens face in cold winter conditions, and we’ll work together to install draft protection in the coop and snow drift protection over our outdoor run. This is going to be a super fun, hands-on learning experience, and students will get to meet our awesome new flock of feathered lovelies: Gert, Millie, Hazel, Dottie, Mrs. Winkles, Chicken Little, Banana and Annie Oakley.

Craft Lake City and the NHMU Presents: Butterfly Ornament Workshop @ Natural History Museum of Utah |  |  |

A longtime admirer of insects and the beautiful entomological universe, Zell Lee started Asana Natural Arts in 2010 with the mission to make the natural world a more conscious part of people’s daily lives. Creating gorgeous pieces made from preserved insects, Lee uses her talent to give back to nature preservations and educate the community about environmental impact. Each insect used in Lee’s art is taken from wildlife preserves, where each insect lives a full life cycle and the use of which helps preserve the next generation of specimen. For this workshop, Lee will teach about the importance of insect preservations and demonstrate how to spread a butterfly. Participant will then create their own butterfly ornament to enjoy in their homes.

Women & Business Conference 2017 @ Little America
Nov 15 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
Women & Business Conference 2017 @ Little America |  |  |

The Salt Lake Chamber’s Women & Business Conference and ATHENA Awards Luncheon is the primary fundraiser for the Women’s Business Center with generous support from our Presenting Sponsors of the Conference, Dominion Energy and WCF, and Luncheon Presenting Sponsor, Wells Fargo.

During the Conference, guests will enjoy BRAVE & BOLD keynote speakers, attend informative breakout sessions with inspiring speakers and recognize the accomplishments of those helping make a difference here in our local community during lunch when the ATHENA Leadership Award® and six Pathfinder Awards will be presented.

Since the inception of the ATHENA Leadership Award® in 1982, more than 6,700 exemplary leaders in over 500 communities have received the prestigious ATHENA Award in the United States, Bermuda, Canada, China, Greece, India, Russia, Unite Arab Emirates and United Kingdom. By honoring exceptional leaders, the ATHENA Leadership Award® Program seeks to inspire others to achieve excellence in their professional and personal lives.

Although the ATHENA International Award was created nationally in 1982, the Salt Lake Chamber’s presented its first ATHENA Award in 1984 to Phyllis Steorts. Since that time, may prominent community leaders have received the award.

Global and National Leadership Award Recipients are chosen based on the following criteria:
-The individual has achieved the highest degree of professional excellence.
-The individual has assisted women in reaching their potential.
-The Individual’s body of work has had a national or global impact

In addition to the ATHENA Award, six other women will receive the Pathfinder Award. The Pathfinder Award is given to community leaders who “create new paths” and promote the development and recognition of women in business
